A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.
I am extremely proud to be an alumnus of The University of Manchester, England. The University gave me a wonderful opportunity to pursue my Ph.D. by awarding me with Dalton Chemical Research Scholarship, one of the most prestigious scholarships. It's surely the major accomplishment and a premier milestone in my life. My grateful thanks and heartfelt best wishes to The University of Manchester, one of the greatest Universities in the world.....this year ranked 5th in the UK and 38th worldwide. Keep it up, my Alma Mater.
I had completed my Executive MBA Degree program, with speciaizations in Finance, Marketing, and Strategy at Sawyer Business School of Suffolk University, Boston, over a decade ago. I truly enjoyed studying at Suffolk University, not only because of the excellent quality of education, but also for its great location, situated right in the heart of Boston, at the world famous Beacon Hill. i surely learnt many management skills, as well as the outstanding knowledge of effective leadership and a valuable insight into organizational dynamics....these are the skills that essentially enabled me to achieve the best for my organization, both as a technology leader and a people manager alike. The academic perspective that came with my Ph.D. was blended beautifully with enhanced business acumen that was instilled during my MBA. I am pleased to recommend Suffolk University, for her excellent Executive MBA program at Sawyer Business School, wholeheart
I had worked at the University of St. Andrews, over 25 years ago during 1985-88, as an academic staff and a research fellow at the Department of Chemistry. Those were the most wonderful and highly productive three and half years of my life. I was fortunate to work in association with one of the genius Scientists in the UK (Professor David Cole-Hamilton) at the most beautiful place in the world, St. Andrews. My research work had led to various patents and publications, creating a notable mark of distinction that stll makes me extremely proud. University of St. Andrews is not only the oldest and highly prestigious University in the world, but also the Crème de la crème, best of the best, and cut above the rest! My Best Wishes from USA, to University of St. Andrews. Mòran taing, Alma Mater.
I, on the other hand, have a degree from the University of Life, a diploma from the School of Hard Knocks, and three gold stars from the Kindergarten of Getting the Shit Kicked Out of Me.
Salute to Mumbai University! I had just turned 15, when I joined University of Mumbai, where I obtained my first two Degrees - B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemistry & Physics, and B.Sc. (Tech) in Chemical Engineering and Polymer Technology. I consider myself to be very fortunate and highly honored to study at the most prestigious institutes of University of Mumbai; Elphinstone College, Institute of Science, and UDCT. University of Mumbai was then known as Bombay University, since her inception in 1857 during the British rule, For me, it was really an awesome experience, full of grace and elegance, to walk through the great corridors of Bombay University buildings, or to enter those excellent libraries of Elphinstone College or Institute of Science (a.k.a. RIS) or UDCT. I have millions of fond and precious memories of my student years at University of Mumbai, involving many magical moments of my best teen years. My heartfelt salute to University of Mumbai, one of the best Universities in the world, and my favorite alma mater. Keep it up, University of Mumbai. We are proud of you - always!

I am proud of my past association with St. Andrews, and The University of St. Andrews....the best memories of my education in the United Kingdom.
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

Yale is a crucible in American life for the accommodation of intellectual achievement, of wisdom, of refinement, with the democratic ideals of openness, of social justice and of equal opportunity.
A university anywhere can aim no higher than to be as British as possible for the sake of the undergraduates, as German as possible for the sake of the public at large-and as confused as possible for the preservation of the whole uneasy balance.
A university is not a service station. Neither is it a political society, nor a meeting place for political societies. With all its limitations and failures, and they are invariably many, it is the best and most benign side of our society insofar as that society aims to cherish the human mind.
A university's essential character is that of being a center of free inquiry and criticism-a thing not to be sacrificed for anything else.
Americans are the only people in the world known to me whose status anxiety prompts them to advertise their college and university affiliations in the rear window of their automobiles.
Children whose curiosity survives parental discipline and who manage to grow up before they blow up are invited to join the Yale faculty. Within the university they go on asking their questions and trying to find the answers ... it is a place where the world's hostility to curiosity can be defied.
Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them.
I live in London and am lucky to have many friends from school, university and work who are from diverse backgrounds. Some of my closest friends are the children of refugees and I have always been fascinated by their stories and the struggle of how they came to the UK and assimilated into society.
I will try to follow the advice that a university president once gave a prospective commencement speaker. 'Think of yourself as the body at an Irish wake,' he said. 'They need you in order to have the party, but no one expects you to say very much.'
